The Defense Security Cooperation University’s School of Security Cooperation Studies (SSCS) recently taught an in-resident international partner foreign military sales (FMS) training class for 17 students representing 9 different countries and NATO. SSCS’s International Partner Security Cooperation Logistics and Finance course spans the full spectrum of Security Cooperation, including legislation & policy, technology transfer/end-use monitoring, the FMS process, acquisition, logistics, and financial management.

The in-residence International Partner Security Cooperation Logistics and Finance course spans 15 business days and involves a robust field studies program to expose the students to American culture as well as the inner workings of the U.S. Government at federal, state, and local levels. This cohort of students had the opportunity to engage with local officials in Beavercreek, Ohio, including Mayor Don Adams.
